This week's "Pastor’s Gratitude Journal" is offering prayers of thanksgiving for those men and women who have served us in 2015 on the Good Shepherd Church Council. This past Sunday, the Church Council held their final meeting of the year 2015. In January, the annual congregational meeting of the church will be held and a new Council will be elected. Some members will step down or be term limited off for 2016. Others will be re-elected and still others will become newly elected.
Scripture tells us “Have confidence in your leaders and submit to their authority, because they keep watch over you” (Hebrews 13:17, NIV). I ask you to join me in offering prayers of gratitude for those who have served us so well and watched over us this past year. When you see them, tell them “THANK YOU!” so that they know how appreciative you are of their hard work on behalf of our church.
Our 2015 Church Council includes: Sharon Wetzel, President; Mel Aucoin, Vice President; David Mains; Secretary; Sandi Graci; Renee Graf; Shawn Hotard; Stan McDonald; Barbara Mehrtens; Susan Schaff; Bob Volk; John Falanga, Treasure (ex officio); and Bobby Villagronga (ex officio).
